It's been a while since I have posted a proper post, so I figured it was about time I did that. 
I have been working on and off everyday (we have had some horrible flu sessions) - and ever since my last appointment with my doctor I have been working half days. I had another doctors appointment and they renewed my sick leave, so I will work half days until first week of May, and I really really hope I will be able to get some more sick leave after that. It's been so great to have my husband take out daddy hours, so he can get our son from day care. I finally feel like I have had a chance to breath.. Having him around the house has been good.. I don't feel like a single parent anymore and it's been doing wonders for my mood. 

I have also been taking my meds everyday now for the last two weeks, and I don't have the insane moodswings anymore. Yesterday my husband said that he noticed a change in my mood, and that I wasn't angry with him all the time anymore.. I am not sure if it is the pills, or that fact that I am not as stressed anymore, or even that we have had better weather and we have had some sun lately.. But I am really glad that something is working. Everything is not fine, but not always being on the edge is making things easier to handle. The side affects of the pills are also getting better.. I don't feel as sick anymore, and I don't have the insane headaches.. I am however really tired, and been going to bed early almost every night.. 

I am also eating less cause I don't have the insane emotional cravings.. I haven't really lost that much of weight though. But I guess it's because I am still eating more than I should.. 100-200 grams here and there doesn't really count. So yeah I really need to get a grip soon.... 

I have also started my therapy again, I had the first session today, and I am going to see her every week for the next 5 weeks, and we are going to take it from there. She had me write this journal over how my days were, and today we talked about what I was missing.. And this week, I am supposed to write another journal and write down how a perfect week would look like for me. It really gets you thinking doesn't it?? 

We are also taking a mini trip to Norway this week.. We are to leave early Thursday morning, and will get back Sunday around midnight.. We are going to stay at my bff's and I am really looking forward to have some girl time with her.. I really wish we could afford to move back to Oslo.. But it really would be such a huge setback for us, that I am not sure if it's worth it... *sigh*

I guess I didn't that much to say anyways lol ... 
Take care ladies :) 



  1. Hey Kits! Glad things are a little better! Enjoy Norway! xoxo

  2. Vad skönt att det verkar gå bättre för dig och familjen!

  3. I'm glad the meds have been helping, even if lower stress levels and nicer weather are a part of it, I'm really happy to hear you're feeling a little better. If they're affecting your sleep, it could be worth asking your doctor if you can take them at a different time of day. I like your therapist's approach, too - keeping journals and thinking about how your days could be better.
    Enjoy Norway! I'm a tad jealous. Australia's far too isolated to take mini trips to other countries, lol.
    Take care lovely xx

  4. It's so good to see you in a positive (at least, headed upward!) direction. Things have been so rough for you lately and you deserve to have happiness.

  5. I am 100% glad you decided to stick with the meds. I have done them before and I found it very helpful!

  6. So glad to hear that you are feeling better! I hope you have a fun trip, you deserve it!

  7. Sounds like sticking with the meds was a good call. I'm glad you are seeing some positive effects so far. So glad you have a trip to see your BFF. It could be just what you need right now.
